PNG Transparency white background=Possible

Hi,

Great software!

Just a word to know if it is possible to display png files with a white background.

Sorry if this has been addressed before.

  1. Go to Tools » Options... » General » Read/Write » Read » PNG:
    • Compose image with transparency should be switched on.
    • Compose image with alpha (32bits) should be disabled.
  2. Go to Tools » Options... » View » View:
    • Pick white as your Background colour.
    • Make sure Use transparent index (<=8bits) or alpha channel setting is activated.

Thank you very much!

This is great, I use mostly pings for print output.

Is there a way to keep the default gray background of xnview and have the the white only in the area of the drawing?

Regards,

Tarc

Activate both Compose image with transparency and Compose image with alpha (32bits). You can then choose whatever Background colour you like for the rest of the window.
